Enjoy being miserable

I'll enjoy being miserable, here's why

My wife has gone and left me,

the bailiff's at the door.

I'm not exactly dying

but my health is very poor.

I have a funny feeling

that I'm subject to a curse.

My hopes and aspirations

all went  into reverse.

The weather's bloody awful,

and my roof is caving in.

Against the odds I'm facing

I know I cannot win.

The preacher at the corner

is promising Man's doom,

and the telly, when it's working

adds to the general  gloom.

I sometimes got the feeling

to my life there's little point,

and so I played with  notions

to leave this earthly joint.

 I heard a voice within me say

"Look on the dark side, mate,

and it will surprise you

what abundance brings your fate."

So, enjoy being miserable,

is what  I have to say,

and you will find enjoyment

from dawn till end of day.

If you're rich in sorrow,

then in sorrow why not wallow?
